How can you have stats for April for iStock, when earnings are yet to be published around 20th of May?

Seems like AS just got busted.

Now it's not "Loading data " anymore. Now it's error - "Unexpected error -  error may be transient but has been logged. If you continue to encounter problems, you can contact customer support."

Ok, we're now back at February earnings.

I think you are correct. I've made 88,5$ in February and 145,02$ in March, so I should get 163,4$ this month after taxex. In reality I got 158,34$.

In january I've earned  92,98$ so 7,32$ short of my double March earning, which would be 100,3$. Despite 7,32$ short I've got paid for January 70,31$ (100,3$ - 30% taxes)

Now if I calculate my February and March earning which is 233,52$ (before taxes) minus those 7,32$ I was short for double earnings in January, the sum would be 226,2$. After taking out 30% taxes, the exact sum would be 158,34$ which is exactly the amount, I was paid this month.

So basically, those 7,32$ that they added to my balance in January, the took it away this month.

So the March earnings were posted a few days ago. My best month there, almost triple from my last years March earnings and also best earner for March of all agencies.

so you totally believe everything the other agencies tell you about sales?  every week it seems it's another agencies night in the barrel.  at least canva is doing something - why do you support other agencies that give you ZERO from  their unused subscriptions, etc?

I am all for the idea of splitting a percentage of total sub payments between contributors based on how many downloads each contributor gets. It is much better than Shutterstocks new payment structure where we do indeed get zero from unused subs and SS gets to pretend they pay a much larger percentage to use than they actually do.
This isnt what is happening with Canva. They are paying out an amount each month, the level of which which they get to decide on with zero transparency, and without any indication of how they come up with the figure. I cant believe you are defending it and not pushing for better terms. Why would you support a business relationship where one side gets to 100% set the terms like that? Why not try and negotiate for a better deal. Its weird to me.

It's not, that we don't like transparency, but, even if they put out how they calculate it, what difference would it make? They can change those calculations in a heartbeat and you couldn't do crap about it. Just like with shutterstock. They basically cut sub royalties overnight, where did negotiations came in, remind me?

At the end of the month, all that matters are $$, and Canva for me it's one of the top tiers. And that's the only thing that matters.

I've always been paid on time, usually around 15th, or maybe a day or 2 later.

January and February combined together were my two best first and second month together since 2016.

I just thought, it was funny, that this article came up ~2 days later after this thread started

I'm with SS 6 years and I've never heard for adjustments before. As far as I know, they didn't accept refunds? At least I didn't had any so far. So thats new for me too.

As for the payments, I always got paid, since I'm with them, no problems. Reviews do take long time, but I just upload and forget,

How do you upload vectors to canva, I mean, do you upload eps file and jpeg in zip file, or just eps.?

For me 123rs is doing better than Dreamstime and depositphotos combined.

Thanks for the tips, I'll check it out.


when I go shooting wildlife (deer especially) I also like to shoot some video. Does anybody know, is there such thing as a 3 axis video stabilizer os something similar that you can put for example between tripod and camera so it would reduce camera shakes or any similar equipment.

Like this video https://www.shutterstock.com/video/clip-29498191-wild-roe-deer-grazing-field  it's pretty shaky, I used only tripod andlens stabilization, I'd like to reduce those shakes.

Go to "Upload a file" and then to "Unfinished files", but sometimes it takes forever for files to show up there.

Anyone else noticed that their november sub earnings are higher than it was first reproted? From sub sales I earn between 65-70$, I can't remember exactly the amount it was but I'm 100% sure it was in that range. Now I checked and it 116$. And this is not that extra amount that they add to reach double earnings from march, it's higher than that.
